We interview Mike Leonard, president of Over the Edge Productions

What can you tell us about the experience, the guys (DT), the trip?
Over the Edge Productions has always had a fantastic experience filming with Dream Theater. For this project, we started in Colombia to film some of the bonus features / documentary segments that will be on the DVD. Then we went straight to Buenos Aires to prepare for the two-night, live show. Everyone in the band and their crew were a pleasure to work with and hang out with… I expected a lot more bumps in the road, but everything came together very smoothly.

What about the equipment/technology for filming?
For the live concert, we brought in a Pulsar TV. They are a local video truck in Buenos Aires and they were fantastic. We also brought in 2 local Jib operators and the rest of the crew was flown in from New York. There were 6 cameras with operators (including 2 jibs, 2 peds and 2 handheld) filming with Sony HSC-300s. The rest were a combination of POV cameras and Mativision’s own specialty cameras that film 360 degrees.

What special features can we expect for the bluray/dvd?
The Bluray and DVD will include up to a half hour of documentary bonus segments plus bonus songs and other goodies that are to be announced.

What about the length of the bluray/dvd?
The main concert is just under 3 hours.

What do you do with your spare time in Buenos Aires? Any anecdotes?
The Over the Edge Production’s crew spent a few extra days in Buenos Aires seeing the sights, drinking the wine and eating some delicious food. Buenos Aires was an amazing city and we enjoyed our time off thoroughly!
